Pandemic graduation 2020

These are my two boys! My oldest was a 2020 graduate. Since graduation was cancelled we decided to have our own graduation. We tried to make it as memorable as possible! We took a little drive around town and he took a picture in front of his elementary, middle and high school. Then we stopped at the little amphitheater by our library and his younger brother dressed as Rex and I made him a giant diploma. We played the graduation song for him and he walked and got his "diploma". We picked up his favorite dinner went home and watched his virtual graduation on YouTube. It was for sure a night to remember and we made the best of it. I still get sad that he and other seniors didn't get the experience of their high school graduation.
